What You Should Know
ElectroKick Sport Drink is not your average shake. There are no fat burning ingredients, no stimulants and no appetite suppressants. Protein levels are very low when compared to other sport shakes, so what does this sports drink offer the dieter – nothing but a few extra calories.
List of Ingredients
Fructose, Whey Protein Concentrate, Maltodextrin, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Sucralose, Potassium Citrate, Beta Carotene and Acesulfame Potassium.
ElectroKick Sport Drink is a product of TapOut sports. As such, the formulation is created for use in the MMA, or mixed martial arts sports industry and other high intensity sports. The first ingredient listed in any supplement is usually the most highly concentrated and in the case of ElectroKick Sport Drink, it is fructose. Fructose is sugar and that means plenty of calories and no calorie burn. One scoop of ElectroKick Sport Drink contains 105 calories, 157 mg sodium, 91 mg potassium, 6 g protein and 20 g carbohydrates. This power drink is clearly an electrolyte supplement used to replenish the body after extreme exertion – not a weight loss meal replacement shake.
The ingredient list tells us everything we need to know about ElectroKick Sport Drink from a weight loss point of view. If a dieter is competing in extreme sports, riding long distances or working out at increased intensity for hours in the gym, this drink could be useful for replenishing sugars, sodium and potassium. However, if that were the case, the dieter would probably not have any trouble losing weight.
High sugar concentrations can lead to spikes and valleys in blood glucose levels. When blood glucose levels drop quickly, the brain signals hunger to replenish sugar. This is why many successful diets are based on low simple carbohydrate foods or elimination of simple carbohydrates all together. If the shake included a fat burning ingredient like green tea or caffeine, there could be some benefit, but otherwise the ElectroKick Sport Drink just adds 105 more calories per scoop to the daily diet total. There is no link to buy the supplement directly from the website, but it can be purchased online for $15.99 per 1.5-pound canister.

ElectroKick Sport Drink by TapOut Nutrition is not the weight loss shake most dieters are looking for. If you are about to run a 5K or cycle in a long distance competition, the product may provide necessary fuel to recharge after competition. Otherwise, athletes and people working out intensely are the primary target for ElectroKick Sport Drink.
